Orange Arrows survived 2002, with Verstappen?

Orange Arrows would appear in 2003 on the grid, if they kept Jos Verstappen in 2002?  A question I have in my mind for reasonable time now.  In 2001, the team drove with works Asiatech engines, freely, though it didn’t brought the team much.

Unraced fans interviews UnracedF1

I was told that it was good to do a Q&A with myself. As I believe in self-reflection but believe  it’s a bit selfish to interview myself I asked the followers and fans of UnracedF1 if they had any questions for me. I got a couple to answer. Probably you won’t learn anything of it. […]
